Apparently there’s a cream knocking about which sends users to sleep in 15 minutes.
I have a complicated relationship with sleep these days. It wasn’t so long ago that I was the envy of insomniacs across the globe thanks to my ability to fall asleep with alarming pace and precision anytime, anyplace. To a degree where people would turn to their friend in shock and say ‘Hang on, is he actually narcoleptic?’
Buses, planes, topsy-turvy car rides through the countryside; in armchairs, in the bath (do not try this at home), on the floor. I’m not playing with you here, guys. Drop me out of a helicopter, handcuffed, onto the badlands of – say – Afghanistan and within seconds I’d be dreaming of LUFC’s soon-to-be promotion to the Premier League.
It’s quite hard to joke about that now retrospectively. I wouldn’t call myself an insomniac, but it’s much easier to go to sleep at an age where you don’t pay tax, you know what I mean?
Given half the chance, I could get a few moments of shut-eye on a bus after a night-out, or on a morning commute. Cars… I reckon those days are over. On a flight back from Poland earlier this year I did manage to pass a few minutes here and there but it was nothing to write home about.
If you haven’t already fallen asleep reading my dropped intro then I guess that means you’re a difficult sleeper and in need of a bit of help. Well, it’s a good thing there’s a cream that sends you off gently in the time it takes to watch half an episode of Friends.
As per Lush:
Slather on this gorgeous pale purple lotion, breathe in its sweet, comforting lavender and tonka perfume and you’ll instantly feel at ease. Glycerin, cocoa butter and almond oil work together to moisturise skin and lock in hydration to keep skin soft, supple and comfortable all day or all night long. Say hello to your new nightly ritual! Zzz…
the sleepy body lotion from lush is absolutely amazing. 10/10 would recommend.

I swear by this product. My flatmates thought my obsession was a little bonkers, but this is my go to insomnia product. If you have a bath try it with a twilight bath bomb.
If not, keep an eye out for twilight shower gel. Theyre all part of the same family of ingredients.

I love Sleepy Body Lotion as well and it helped me so much with insomnia. Another good product that I think helps as well is the Twilight Body Spray as I spray my pillow at night and I fall asleep so easy now. – Alice ?

By all accounts, this stuff works. Sure, there may be an underlining psychological aspect to it, but if a placebo works who cares?
I for one intend to invest in a big welcome tub of this sleep crack for those tricky car rides and layovers in the Afghan badlands.
